Or not. Karen and Freddie were married in a beautiful ceremony and divorced 45 minutes later, a record even for her. We knew she wouldn't last long with the second-rate golfer, but the big news was that she finally admitted that she is in love with Nick. I found it rather sad that she was so freaked out when Freddie got down on his knees and professed his love for her and she immediately requested a divorce. He did get $3 million worth of
Dirty Sexy Money, so how hard could it really be? Letitia tried to drink the candle when Karen said she wanted to marry Nick and asked Karen to "let me help you," completely conspiratorially. All I can say is, Karen may be a lot of nasty things, but she looks good without makeup.
When Karen kissed Nick, he ran (guiltily) home to Lisa and told her how much he loved her. "I'm yours," he repeated twice (because everyone on this show has two loves). Somehow, I wasn't totally convinced the second was for his wife.
Patrick is in cahoots with Simon Elder and it is heartbreaking to his father. He proved his mettle by throwing a lawsuit against his father's friends and business associates. To add insult to injury, his wife, Ellen, questioned him about his affair, "With a woman, or a man, or something in between." Patrick accused a very drunken Tripp of having spilled the beans. I thought maybe Karen had told Ellen about Carmelita, but it was Simon. He's just bad, bad to the bone. Based on Simon's advice, Patrick told Ellen about the affair. I'm not sure this was such a good idea, but Simon obviously has an agenda. I think Patrick is a weak man. He always has to have someone tell him what to do. First his father, now Simon, then his wife and Carmelita. Poor guy.
" "It's none of my business how you like your eggs."
" "The last time I saw you, you dumped our son in my lap like a half-eaten sandwich."
" "He is as capable and deserving a fourth husband as you are likely to find."
" "Your honor, the seven deadly sins are not like the Constitution, they can't be amended. So if I were you, yes, I would be worried."
" "She will not keep us out of Washington, either one of us. I did not marry a Darling for nothing."
" "I have to write a sermon for my sister and her fourth ex-husband."
When Tripp told Kiki, "Your dad is family," I thought, "Too true, too true." The DNA results have still not been revealed to us....
Tripp's tequila-drinking binge started at 9 am with Nick and ended with a bone-dry bottle and songs with Clark. It was a tradition he reserved for Karen's wedding days, which he started with her first father-in-law. Her fourth wedding day was a bittersweet day for him. He was crestfallen but not surprised when she came to tell him that she had already had the marriage annulled.
OK, a total aside, but what's with all the vanishing actors? First it was Elle Fanning being replaced by the new Kiki, and now there is a totally different mother for Brian's son. The first actress,
Brooke Smith, has been on
Weeds and is on
Grey's Anatomy. I liked her. But Brian Sr didn't seem to mind that it was someone else and had a quickie reunion with his babymama. I was heartbroken for him when she told him she was taking Brian Jr to Brazil. He's such a self-righteous b--tard most of the time that it makes it that much harder when he is hurt by something. What a range on this actor.
Glenn Fitzgerald really runs the gamut of emotions. He's fabulous.
Speaking of little Kiki, she was already plotting to live just like the Darlings, "No matter what it takes, no matter what." Scary. Sounds like she takes after the Darlings more than the Georges.
Tripp described the feeling he was having on Karen's fourth wedding day, as "Aware," pronounced "a-war-ay," a Japanese term meaning "reverence for the transient beauty and mortality of all things." His inner struggle was apparent when he told Karen, "This day in a father's life, grief and joy are intertwined." Once again,
Donald Sutherland stole just about every scene he was in, and even a few he wasn't.
Strange and wonderful things:
" Brian at the foot of the wedding bed - hilarious.
" The wedding procession song was hysterical. "There's no place left to go."
" Juliet's ever-lengthening and -shortening hair extensions.
Brian's wedding sermon incorporated the three Cs: confirmation, consolation and, wait for it, joy. Even though "joy" isn't a C-word, life and love are surprising. It was actually a really nice sermon. And it led to one of the best lines of the ep when Tripp said to Brian, "There really is such a kind person buried deep down inside of you - deep, deep down inside you. Somewhere."
Have you ever noticed we almost never see scenes with Juliet and Karen. Not a lot of sisterly bonding going on there. Karen has to be near 40 and Juliet just turned 25. Poor Tish was pregnant over the course of more than 15 years? That's gotta suck.
Simon finally ticked Tripp off to the point of no return. Tripp told Nick he has endured "massive betrayal" but "will not suffer this man. I want to destroy him." Tripp, I'm not sure I understand what you mean. "I want that son of a bitch completely and utterly destroyed." Oh, I see. Well, it sure seems like Simon deserves it.
Natalie tried to win Juliet back with her hit single "Free to Forgive." It really irked Jeremy, but it worked like a charm on Juliet, and she was smitten. The reunited girls ran off into the sunset with Juliet's accessorizing dog and their Pinkberry fro-yos.
